What I wore to my friend's BBQ the other day. I made these shorts from vintage fabric for 4th of July but I think I made them a little too short! Atleast having a good butt gives you street cred in my neighborhood. I was feeling a bit Carmen Miranda pin-up so I just decided to role with it.
Also, can I just say how much I love a printed silk in the summer? It absorbs your sweat and you can't see the stains through the print! I've been thinking a lot about natural fibers vs. the cheap plastic crap everyone buys at H&M, Top Shop and Forever 21. I'm trying to phase those shops out. The clothes don't breathe and they wear out almost immediately. I think that's one of the reasons I love wearing vintage so much. It's the easiest and most cost effective way to wear quality clothing.

Scarf, suede earrings, clutch, and shirt are vintage. Shorts are handmade. Shoes are Casa Hernanz. Glasses are Miu Miu. Bangles are H&M.

    I don't think they look too short, they're very pin up and really suit the styling for this outfit! They could be a 50s bathing shorts! You look so fabulous as always, I think your confidence just exudes through your outfits and they make me very happy! love red and leopard combination, very retro!

  6. Thanks everyone!! You can't tell in these pics but my butt cheeks show a bit from the back, haha.
    Miss Nico: I use the continuous shoot timer on my Canon T2i. I wish I had a photographer though. All the popular blog girls use their boyfriends, haha.
